UNTRANSLATABLE / “serendipidonkey”

part of speech

noun

definition

That feeling when you are driving through a country in which you pass donkeys all day every day, and all you want to do is touch one of their velvet noses but they are usually otherwise engaged. Except: at one of the exact moments you are forming the words “I’d really love to pet a donkey”, you round a corner and there stands a lone donkey, docile and friendly, just waiting to nuzzle you.

Usage

“We experienced a moment of pure serendipidonkey just after we finished our hike in Akchour.”
